Whole Orange & Chocolate Cupcake


I love citrus flavor in baked goods.Especially Orange,the mild tinge of orangey goodness in a cake is too hard to resist.It is a dominant flavor in this cake and strangely,I haven’t much used it in my cakes after that.While going through some recipes,I remembered this cupcake recipe which I learnt in a baking class I attended a while back.The class dealt with baking with fruits and I joined because I was curious to know what it was all about.


The class itself was a short one with 9 recipes covered in two days.But to be honest,I was disappointed[not with the recipes though!].I expected an interactive cooking class where we were also a part of the whole process,but this one was more like a sit-and-watch kind of a thing.Nevertheless,it was a learning experience was for me.The little tips and tricks shared by her were quite useful.

This is the second recipe from the class.The first one being this cake,the original recipe used Lychees in syrup but I substituted it with Strawberries.

I used a variety of Orange called Kinnow.It is not very bitter tasting hence works perfect for this cake.

  22. The recipe is unique and different. Do we have to boil the oranges for 40-45 minutes? Can I just use store-bought juice instead? The cup-cakes look really yum, moist and delicious! Loved the frosting on top too...

  23. MD..the unique flavor of these cupcakes come from the whole Orange pulp,I don't think Orange juice can recreate the taste.It is my opinion though,maybe you can try it and we'll have a different flavored cupcakes altogether!!
